With my first, I experienced bleeding after birth for about 6 weeks, the last week was fairly light and brownish in color. I think I still was bleeding lightly at my 6 week PP Gyno. visit. I think it is normal. With my second, I recovered more quickly and bled for only about 4 weeks. I assumed that was normal and was told by my gyno that it was. Perhaps you should bring this up at your pp 6 week check up. I am sure your Gyno will know what to do  if it is at all abnormal, which I don't think it is. Good luck.
